Deadline: January 28, 2013.

Expected starting date: First half of 2013.

Job Location: SDU, Odense, Denmark.

The Department of Mathematics and Computer Science (IMADA), the Centre for Cosmology and Particle Physics Phenomenology (CP3-Origins), and the Danish Institute for Advanced Study (DIAS) at the University of Southern Denmark in Odense invite applications for a permanent associate professor position in lattice gauge theory.

Initially the position will be financed by a Lundbeck Foundation Fellowship held by the lattice group leader Associate Professor Claudio Pica. The candidate is expected to start his appointment in the first half of 2013.

We are seeking outstanding, experienced and competitive researchers who have already demonstrated their potential to excel in research as well as the ability to attract significant funding. The research activity of the lattice gauge group is focused on the understanding of the phase diagram of strongly coupled theories and its use for physics beyond the standard model, collider phenomenology, conformal dynamics and dark matter. Prospective candidates are expected to contribute significantly in these areas.

The successful applicant will take part in the teaching activities in mathematics and applied mathematics at IMADA. During the initial, co-financed period of five years, teaching duties will be reduced by 50%.

CP3-Origins is a centre of excellence recently established by the Danish National Research Foundation, dedicated to the understanding of the origins of bright and dark matter in the universe. We are among the world leaders in studies of dynamical electroweak symmetry breaking, its phenomenological consequences and the phase diagram of gauge theories. The centre offers a dynamical, exciting and international working environment and has active collaborations with leading scientists in Europe, USA and Japan.
